I am using the RSCD Bulk installer for BladeLogic 8, which I must say is very useful : - )
I noticed that when I do a discovery some servers are discovered with an IP address, and some with the fully qualified hostname.
My strong preference is to return the hostname as I can then the enrollment process in the bulk installer and not have to then change the name.
I have check the /etc/hosts file on both servers and they both have fq hostnames. Both types also have dns working.
Does anyone know why some servers return ip's and some hostnames when doing a discovery ?
I managed to work it out in the end.
The Bulk Installer needs to be able to do a reverse lookup of the ip address.
The servers that came back with IP's did not have reverse lookup entries in DNS.
